Veggie Grill, the largest plant-based restaurant brand offering innovative, chef-inspired food, will launch its newest location in Downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday, December 18, 2018. In partnership with the Central City Association and Downtown Center Business Improvement District, Veggie Grill will host an official ribbon cutting at 10 a.m. on opening day, where a $1,000 donation will be presented to the Garden School Foundation. The foundation provides in-depth garden-based education to youth at Title I schools in Los Angeles, strengthening connections between food justice, environmental awareness, and community health.
Downtown Los Angeles has become a booming, thriving community with more people choosing to live and work downtown. “We want to support this resurgence in Downtown Los Angeles, which is home to a diverse collection of people, culture and businesses,” says Veggie Grill CEO Steve Heeley. “With this opening, Veggie Grill will be a part of Downtown Los Angeles’ revitalization and cater to a dynamic community who believes in our purpose—better for you. Better for the planet.”
Veggie Grill has received a huge number of requests to open a location in Downtown Los Angeles, so the brand decided to open a restaurant there to meet the demand of its guests. Veggie Grill will serve its signature and seasonal dishes at the Downtown Los Angeles location, which includes the VG Beyond Burger, Santa Fe Crispy Chickin’, Sonoran Bowl, and Mediterranean Supergreens Salad, among many others. The menu features food that is free of animal products, antibiotics, and hormones, and is a celebration of veggies, fruits and nuts. Veggie Grill’s plant-based menu will offer a convenient and delicious meal for Angelenos who work and live in Downtown Los Angeles.
The DTLA location will be open on Monday-Friday from 10:30 a.m.—9 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday from 11 a.m.—8 p.m. and offer dine-in, online, take-out and delivery. The restaurant will be located at 523 West 6th Street. Veggie Grill, has 32 locations in California, Oregon, Washington and Illinois, and plans to expand across the nation in 2018-2019.
